CORTLANDT, N.Y. -- A Croton-on-Hudson teenager accused of filming patrons in various states of undress in the locker room and shower area of a local health club had his Cortlandt Justice Court case adjourned until May 2.

Daniel "Max" Winsten was scheduled to appear in Cortlandt Town Court Friday at 9 a.m. for a superior court information session but neither he nor his lawyer were present.

Winsten was charged with unlawful surveillance in the second degree, a Class E felony, and possessing an obscene performance by a child, also a Class E felony. Winsten faces up to four years in state prison if found guilty, state police said.

Trooper Melissa McMorris, the public information officer for the state police, said Winsten was accused of doing the filming at Premier Athletic Club in Montrose.

Winsten was arraigned in the Town of Cortlandt Court in November and released on his own recognizance with certain conditions imposed by the court.

According to New York Criminal Procedure, superior  court  information  is a written accusation by a district  attorney charging a person with a crime. A superior court information has the  same  force  and  effect  as  an  indictment.
